Our country is under a national security crisis, and the threat is the president of the United States. Former CIA director, John Brennan came out with this sharp announcement, and Democrats did the same. Now, Republicans across the nation have started to walk beyond mere words and into action.
An Ohio Republican Party chair resigned in protest over Donald Trump’s betrayal in Helsinki, Finland. POTUS stood beside Russia’s President Vladimir Putin and chose to believe and support the dictator over his own intelligence people.
Trump’s Helsinki summit occurred mere days after his own Department of Justice (DOJ) indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for allegedly hacking the Democratic National Committee (DNC). The officers were working under Putin’s orders.
The former county GOP chair, Chris Gagin, tweeted:
‘I remain a proud conservative and Republican, but I resigned today as Belmont Co Ohio GOP Chairman. I did so as a matter of conscience, and my sense of duty.’
‘The President is entitled to GOP party leaders, at all levels, fully committed to his views and agenda. Following today’s press conference with Pres. Putin, as well as certain policy differences, most especially on trade, I could no longer fulfill that duty. Thus, I resigned.’
The former party chair said that he can no longer serve as Belmont County’s GOP chair “as a matter of conscience.” He pointed to Trump’s “policy differences” as his reason for doing do, according to Cleveland.com.
He was the former staffer of U.S. Representative Charlie Wilson (R-OH). Wilson had been a Democrat before switching to the Republican Party in 2013.
Republican Gagin had been the chair in Southeast Ohio since April 2016.
